We’re grateful Mazda felt compelled to imbue its new midsize family sedan with a healthy dose of sporting character, pulled straight from the bag o’ Mazda heritage. Instead of an ocean of boring same ol’, same ol’, we now have more options for balancing fun with practicality than just a Passat. Check out the size of the Mazda6’s trunk; see the list of standard features, like tilt/telescoping steering wheel; feel how roomy the back seat is for your passengers. Then open it up, let the engine propel you down the street, feel the front wishbone suspension work to keep you glued through the turns. It’s no 3 Series, but for 10k less, it offers a more 3 Series-like driving experience than most in its class.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
